Earpods, iphone5 and iOS multitasking @macolgan @akrabat
Oh here's the source document: http://www.apple.com/batteries/iphone.html
Hi @sm2n, @macolgan and @akrabat. I understand the whole concept of "Recently Used" apps, however, with my own little iPhone, whose battery I'm afraid is long gone past its best before date, I've had to take some measures to try and mitigate battery drainage. First thing I did was put it in "Airplane" mode, but re-enabled the WIFI, as I don't use it as an actual phone it's fine this way. The other thing I also did was to turn off "Notification" on many if not most of my apps. I'm figuring it this way, if notifications are on, then either each app must be launched and check for a push message and then shutdown or some part of the app must run in the background. I came up with this as I was scouring Apple's site on battery performance and in one of their tip sheets saw the following: If Apple are suggesting turning off Notification to conserve battery power then I assume that something is NOT running to conserve that power. Does my theory hold water? "Turn off push notifications: Some applications from the App Store use the Apple Push Notification service to alert you of new data. Applications that extensively rely on push notifications (such as instant messaging applications) may impact battery life. To disable push notifications, go to Settings > Notifications and disable notifications for select applications. Note that this does not prevent new data from being received when the application is opened. Also, the Notifications setting will not be visible if you do not have any applications installed that support push notifications."

Switchtasking...and why we're so crap at it...
...not to be confused with multitasking, kids!
Thanks top...I loved everything about the service until I realized that in order for it to work properly, I'd have to turn on Location Settings... :-(
I've grown to like cards pushed to me by Google Now. Fewer interruptions. Quality notifications.

Jailbreaking - Risks vs Benefits
So iPhone OS4 wasn't announced today. No biggie, you can already get multitasking (the most lacking feature of the iPhone) with no risk.
